For months now Amazon has had a "placeholder listing" for the upcoming "Power of the Primes" Blast-Off figure but there were no photos or details. Now the listing has been updated featuring shiny stock photos and product information! Interestingly, Blast-Off is shown with a "Combiner Wars" hand/foot/weapon accessory instead of the "Prime Armor" hands most Deluxes have had in "Power of the Primes". Here is the description:
